We went for the 12 euro menu lunch prepared for a modicum of compromise. There was no compromise. What you see is what you get - there were no tricks. The quality of the food was great, the service was efficient and the value was unbelievable (literally). Recommended.

Place was heaving. Had to wait approx. 20 minutes to get table. Had parrila de carne which included pork ribs, various cuts of beef, chicken fillets, chicken wings and creole sausage. Huge dish of meat for 2 people(would easily do 3 or 4 people-OK so the 2 of us ate it all!!) Came with huge, fresh salad. Lovely chargrilled flavour.... More

Breakfast meals are between 2.50-5.00 euros and includes fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee. We went at 9am. Service was good and fast. Looking at lot of places for breakfast within a mile, this one appears the cheapest but very good.

This place is amazing. I have had Sangria from 4 different places and these people stand out. Amazing flavour... right amount of alcohol and a lot of fruits. Authentic...the way it is supposed to be. The portions they serve is big. Best meat platter in town. A must visit.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
